Car History

This R107 500 SL is of a high specification with Air Conditioning fitted as standard complemented with Heated seats, Mother of Pearl Grey metallic is a colour that suits this model nicely. It carries 26 service stamps throughout its life many from MB dealers and two from SL Shop. MOT certificates dated back to 2002 to present. Many documents and bills from previous repairs during the five previous owners. The last owner was a collector who also owns many Classic Mercedes motorcars, this one being a late model 500 with a high specification attracted him. Now he is downsizing his fleet and feel it best to be enjoyed. It stayed with its original owner until 1993 where it was serviced by the supplying dealer in West Yorkshire. A secondary service book was supplied due the many stamps it received.

Bulkhead Corrosion

Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour – the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.

All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.
